1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Looks awesome drew. I consider my bomber a lifetime piece, as long as I don't get fat.

    I'm hoping for a lighter weight S/S Varsity. Would be all I could rock out of this line, I think [​IMG]

    These prices are set for awhile, unless the forex takes a very sizable dip on us, so subject to notice, but expect them to stay around the same range.

    I am getting Bomber questions lately but I don't know what to say beyond 1) don't use the pattern to make something else, 2) the components and materials are the same as they've been beyond the Riri zippers, which are good, and the only choice, and 3) they are solid as fuck, no questions and you'll still be blown away when it's in your hands.
    Current availability, January 2011: 3. The Bomber jacket, available in black and brown calf, black and brown lamb, and other colors upon request; matching sateen lining and YKK Japan zippers. $710 shipped.
    so no more riri zippers?

    I never really figured out why the price jumps. Unless it's just bigger margin which would be totally justifiable since it's still a fair bit below what it should cost for these things. Those shots of the chesterfield are drool-worthy.

    ^^ RiRi, Lampo etc. aren't necessarily of higher quality than YKK zippers. YKK makes all kinds of zippers - from cheap/lightweight to non-cheap/heavy...

    Yeah, Riri's have run out. There may be a couple more left in black but apart from that, we're just YKK Japan again. I like their performance/put together looks and they're my local offering, basically. You guys needn't worry about zippers because the differences are very minute and the effort to configurate them is huge, so we don't offer any kind of customization or choices when it comes to zippers, except when we can offer different colors (i.e. the blacked zippers as opposed to gunmetal, etc)... offering different brands of zippers, etc, is not viable.

    We buy our material, pay labor, and ship in a foreign country but receive our money in USD. The Forex and tax demands change frequently and we are at the mercy of them. I have kept a consistent margin requirement since I started, though.

    drew, does the fishtail have two-way zips?

    also, beginning of the new thread seems like an appropriate time to say congrats to the toj crew. it's been really interesting watching the brand evolve over the past year. keep it up.

    the fishtail just has a one-way zip; two way is not critical to the design (two way is never really that important, but people think they need them... [​IMG]) Also, thank you to everyone; the more I work on this stuff, the better I feel about it, and the problems encountered along the way have been very few; it has truly been my pleasure thus far to do all of this.

    I just think you're getting soaked if you're actually paying a bunch of money to the IRS, that's all. Might as well keep more in your pocket, I don't think people would begrudge you a bigger margin particularly if the alternative is it goes to the tax man.
